Kiyasse Children’s Spring Festival | HANYU
March 24 @ 10:00 - 16:00Free in, individual events may cost money
Kiyasse Children’s Spring Festival – Kiyasse Hanyu is best described by the people responsible for it’s design, Yoshiki Toda Landscape & Architect Co.,Ltd.:
Kiyasse-Hanyu, also called Hanyu Agriculture and Forestry Park, produces a food resort atmosphere with beer restaurants, stores and rest rooms under a huge roof designed to appear as if colorful leaves had fallen down. By arranging the buildings spaciously and locating car parking on the perimiter, unity was achieved throughout landscape. As this site suffers from flooding, a required reservoir and hillocks produced the combination of earth and waterscape. On top of the hill, “magnolia” as a symbol attracts visitors on “the observation deck”.
They hold a number of events during the year. On Sunday, March 24th, they will have their popular children’s spring festival from 10 am to 4 pm. For the most part the festival is free, they even give kids a gift of balloon shaped animals. And the kids can pet animals in the petting corner for free too.
There is playground equipment in the facility that the children can use all year round.
Other events such as pounding and eating the mochi costs 300 yen. The bouncy castle is 100 yen for 5 minutes. The game corner also costs money, except for the throw the hoop activity which is free. They have cardboard craft which costs 500 yen per child.
There are three different live acts scheduled for Sunday including a kids hula act who will perform twice, once in the morning (10.40 am) and once in the afternoon (1 pm). The kids taiko performance is at 11.20 am and there is a live band at 2 pm.
